Tinypass is excited to announce the acquisition of NYC-based Swishu, an advanced paywall and subscriber management technology company. The deal, which brings complementary technology and new clients to the Tinypass platform, enhances Tinypass’ ability to provide publishers and site owners with comprehensive revenue solutions, particularly in terms of digital/physical bundling. Swishu founder Nathan Goulding will join Tinypass as Vice President of Product Engineering.

From the outset, Tinypass’ core technology has been an API – an application programming interface – that enables online publishers to control access to a resource. Resources are defined by the publisher and can be any sort of digital media: an article, a movie, a blog post, a PDF, access to a forum, access to an entire web site, etc. In the case of Tinypass, access is triggered by the purchase of the resource, i.e. dollars for content.
To date, the Tinypass API has come in three flavors – Java, .Net, and PHP. Today, we are excited to announce the Ruby version of the Tinypass API.
Designed by Yukihiro Matsumoto – aka “Matz” – back in 1995, Ruby is a powerful, flexible programming language commonly used in web development. Ruby got a shot in the arm in the mid 2000s with the introduction of Ruby on Rails, an open source framework which is optimized for easier development and higher development productivity. As with many of our new features, the Ruby library – you can check it out here http://developer.tinypass.com/downloads – was the result of customer demand. Keep your requests and ideas coming and help shape the future of our platform.
We are excited to announce that we have secured $3M in additional funding as we continue to grow our business and capitalize on the early success of Tinypass. You can read all of the details here – http://tinyp.as/newinvest
